Thanks much Steve. I am engaged in the same maneuvers as those you
described. However, in view of some troublesome entries, I supposed
there might be a magic trick to get the parcels to the right places.
So, I appear to be on the right track, just a bit spatially

I don't use labels or annotations on parcels as an aid to
placement. I use the Table View sorted by To, plus the Filter to locate candidate parcels
owned by the neighbors mentioned in a deed. I use the filter on creek names also. If the
creek name can be located, I tend to drop the parcels for a creek somewhere along the
creek. Once a number of parcels are located on the waters of the correct creek, I use
Display Corners+Lines+Area to compare corner and line descriptions and start to fit them
together. Meader lines are always helpful in fitting the parcels to the map and to each
other. If the watercourse can't be found, I build up a neighborhood off-map until I
have enough clues to determine its actual location. There's no one single thing I do
to fit the parcels together. Each situation is a little different.
